British police are investigating Wednesday whether a British man and woman arrested on suspicion of supporting terrorism offenses in Syria were part of a group that held two veteran war journalists hostage in Syria in July.
"There wasn't any woman anywhere, so that surprised me," he said of the Heathrow arrests. "But that doesn't mean it's not one of the guys in the camp. They were all 20-somethings so it might just well be the kidnappers."
Oerlemans, a prominent Dutch photographer who was shot twice during a failed escape attempt, told the Associated Press Wednesday that the ages of the two suspects was consistent with the ages of the people who held him hostage shortly after he entered Syria on July 19.
